Dr. Ken Randall and our highly-trained team work with patients to customize treatment plans, creating convenient treatments that work with our patients lifestyles. We do everything we can to make treatment as convenient as possible for our patients, which is why we're proud to offer CEREC same-day crowns to all of our dental patients.

What Are CEREC Crowns?

CEREC – which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction – is an exciting, high-tech solution for dental crowns that allows us to create and place your permanent crowns in a single visit. Normally, crowns require us to first shape the tooth for the crown, then place a temporary crown as we fabricate your permanent crown. But with CEREC, we can treat a cavity, create your permanent crown, and affix it all in a single visit.

How Does CEREC Work?

CEREC works by using an advanced 3D milling machine that precisely manufactures your crown from a small block of porcelain or ceramic composite. Once we treat the cavity and shape your tooth for the crown, we'll create a 3D computer model of the tooth, then upload that into the CEREC machine. Dr. Randall will then use the machine to precisely manufacture your new crown to perfectly match your tooth, helping to eliminate fit problems and ensuring you get your new crown in just one office visit. Instead of waiting 2 weeks with a temporary crown, the CEREC system allows you to get a precision-manufactured permanent crown in just one day!

Benefits of CEREC Crowns

The CEREC system offers a variety of benefits to patients, and we're excited to offer it at our Hixson, TN dental practice. A few of the main benefits of CEREC include:

  • We can manufacture your permanent crown in one visit, allowing us to complete the crown process in a single day instead of up to two weeks
  • CEREC uses digital impressions, which doesn't require you to use messy dental putty
  • Thanks to the precision milling machine, CEREC crowns are highly accurate and usually fit perfectly
  • We use modern ceramics, providing a long-lasting, natural-looking crown
